OSLO – Anders Behring Breivik was questioned for ten hours on Friday to verify details from previous sessions and answer new points. Police would not confirm reports that he had also wanted to attack the palace and Labour Party headquarters, the BBC informs. Funerals have begun on Friday for the 77 people killed by Breivik in the attacks.
Without citing its sources, Norwegian tabloid Verdens Gang reported that the suspect had considered attacking the royal palace because of its symbolic value, and Labour HQ because of his loathing for the party. On Friday, Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, told Aftenposten newspaper that his client had harboured “several projects of different scale for that Friday”. “Things happened that day, which I don’t want to go into, which meant events unfolded differently from what he had planned,” he added. He said his client continued to show no remorse, saying the killings were “a necessary act… a war against the rule by Muslims”.
Police are believed to have been checking targets identified by Breivik in his manifesto, which outlines both his extremist ideas and details his preparations for attacks. A memorial concert at Oslo’s cathedral on Saturday featured the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation Symphony Orchestra and some of Norway’s best-known recording artists.
